Once the dragon came out, Sidi Mantra asked for help. The dragon agreed to gave him gold.

Manik Angkeran so happy to see the gold but greed made him want more. He stole his father bell and go to Agung Mountain to meet the dragon himself. After the dragon gave him gold, he became greedier and cut the tail of the dragon to get more. The dragon got angry and burnt him to death.
